SEMINAR: King Jesus and the Beauty of Obedience-Based Discipleship.

Discipleship.org will be hosting an exciting half-day online seminar on July 1, 2020, titled King Jesus and the Beauty of Obedience-Based Discipleship.

The four-hour workshop is based on David Young’s new book by the same title. Early Registration is only $19 and you will receive a digital copy of David Young’s book – King Jesus and the Beauty of Obedience Based Discipleship and a digital access pass of the half-day seminar main sessions.

The date is Wednesday, July 1st and the time: 11:45 am – 4:00 pm – CENTRAL TIME.

I have not yet read Young’s book as the paperback is scheduled to go on sale by end of July. But again you get a free digital copy after you register for seminar.

Obedience-based discipleship?

Here is a description of the book and the topic of the seminar:

So what does it mean to be a disciple? The call of discipleship is more than programs and Bible study. In King Jesus and the Beauty of Obedience-Based Discipleship, David Young presents a bold call for obedience-based discipleship and argues that it alone is the proper response to the kingship of Jesus.

Many have wrongly associated obedience with bad theology, believing that Jesus’ demand for obedience is a form of works righteousness or legalism. Others simply don’t like obedience and resist the demands Jesus makes in calling us to follow him.

“You don’t merely believe in kings. You obey them.”

But if we surrender to the kingship of Jesus, we will find the life we were designed to live. We are accustomed to calling Jesus “Savior.” And we should. But until recently, many in the Western church have not learned to call Jesus “King.”

The kingship of Jesus has implications for how we live. We can either rebel against him, raising puppet kings, and constructing our own kingdoms, or we can submit to him in obedience-based discipleship. Could it be that you are still sitting on the throne of your life, treating King Jesus as a mere advisor? What would change in your life if you started treating Jesus as nothing short of your King?

Young unpacks five principles for those who wish to follow Jesus as King.

  1. Surrender to the authority of King Jesus
  2. Embrace the mission of King Jesus
  3. Live immersed in King Jesus
  4. Obey the teachings of King Jesus
  5. Behold the presence of King Jesus

Following these five steps awakens us to a life truly worth living, a life of power, peace, beauty, and love. This is eternal life, that we would know and follow Jesus as King of the Universe, and king over our lives. After all, you don’t merely believe in kings. You obey them.

Format – each session will include:

  • 15-minute Ted-style Talk
  • 25-minute Panel Dialogue
  • 20-minute Q & A Breakout Rooms with David Young, Bobby Harrington, Bill Hull, Renee Sproles, and Ben Barnet

Questions and Topics:

  • How do you define the Kingdom of God?
  • Why is it so important to understand that Jesus is King?
  • You will see how people can easily create a false understanding of Jesus and how to make sure that you hold to a right understanding of Jesus.
  • You will get an easy to understand framework to help you remember the Great Commission –To Make Disciples
  • You will learn how obedience is a beautiful thing.

“The kingship of Jesus has implications for how we live. We can either rebel against him, raising puppet kings, and constructing our own kingdoms, or we can submit to him in obedience-based discipleship.”

Will you join me online as we learn how to be and make obedient disciples of Jesus Christ?

Our Mission

We exist to glorify and honor God by equipping Christians to diligently “go and make disciples” and contend for the faith, in a morally and spiritually bankrupt culture — with gentleness and respect.

Brian Dobler

Brian has a contagious enthusiasm when it comes to sharing the creation-gospel message. An evangelist at heart, he desires to see Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ more effectively (1 Peter 3:15).

The Dobler family founded Take a Closer Look at the Evidence (now Tyrannus Hall) in 2018 and travel as full-time RVers—allowing them the ability to spend more time and make a more meaningful investment in local communities and churches.

Tyrannus Hall is a discipling/creation apologetics (i.e., bible-defending) ministry. Our primary focus is providing answers to questions surrounding the book of Genesis, as it is the most attacked book of the Bible.

We also desire to train others to develop a Biblical worldview and live for the glory of God. Not only do we teach Biblical creation, but we expose the bankrupt philosophy of molecules-to-man evolution and its “millions-of-years” of earth history that has led so many people to doubt the Christian faith (2 Corinthians 10:5).
